Remnants of ’68

  Earthsea is back after a time-out, partly spent digging amongst inherited documents and objects. One interesting paper found was this one, calling workers and students to a rebellious mass meeting in the Ghost Park of Stockholm, for the following of the masses in Paris. It is not dated, but is clearly produced in late May 1968. Neither is it stated who printed and distributed this leaflet.

An almost identical leaflet is found on the website of the Swedish labour movement’s archive and library, see:

However on this particular item, there are notes on the backside written by Olof Palme, who is known for at that time confronting the revolutionary students and accusing them of being cowards and hooligans.
